Netanyahu Hit IAEA Head For Saying Attack On Iran Would Be ‘Illegal’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to IAEA Director Raphael Grossi’s declaration that any strike on Iran’s nuclear program would be unlawful as “unworthy” on Sunday.

“Contrary to what law?

“Netanyahu remarked at the Cabinet meeting on Sunday. Is it acceptable for Iran, which openly advocates for our annihilation, to defend the deadly weapons that would kill us? Do we have the right to self-defense? It is evident that we are and will act this way.

Rafael Grossi was “a worthy gentleman who uttered something unworthy,” the speaker claimed.

The Israeli prime minister added that it was Purim eve, “2,500 years ago, an enemy arose in Persia who attempted to kill the Jews.

They were unsuccessful back then, and they won’t be successful now.

In a press conference with Mohammed Eslami, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency, after a meeting on Saturday in Tehran, Grossi stated: “I think any attack, any military attack on a nuclear site is outlaw[ed]—is out of the normative structures that we all follow by.”

During the two-day summit, the IAEA attempted to persuade Iran to comply with the U.N. Nuclear watchdog aims to track the nation’s adherence to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear agreement it signed with other countries in 2015.

According to the IAEA head, the negotiations had “high expectations,” and participants had shown “readiness” to collaborate.

According to a statement issued by the parties on Saturday, the two sides concurred to cooperate. 
According to Grossi, Tehran will permit the IAEA to reinstall several surveillance tools taken out last year.
Grossi’s visit follows quarterly IAEA report published on February 28 which revealed that Iran could create enough weapons-grade (90% enriched) uranium for nuclear bomb in 12 days using half of its current stock of 60% enriched uranium.
According to the IAEA, a sample taken on January 22 at the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant (FFEP) included uranium particles that were enriched to 83.7%.
According to the research, if Iran procrastinates, inspectors may find it challenging to discover a nuclear weapon breakout swiftly.
